I've mentioned before, but it bears repeating, furries are on the media's radar in an increasingly good way:
- Furries get mentioned in passing in an article about weather bloggers: "Even furries—those who enjoy comics and books featuring anthropomorphic animals—have used the Internet to organize conventions with thousands of attendees."
- A review of Final Fantasy XII: "Also, with the appearance of the rabbit-eared women, Final Fantasy finally gets furries."
- A company is making figurines of Second Life characters: "They go for about $99 each and it doesn't take much imagination to realize that the primary audience for a service such as this is Second Life's constabulary of furries."
- An article about Second Life: "The fantasists include a great number of fairies, Jedi warriors, and Tolkien characters, but also a group called "furries" - avatars created by people who yearn to role-play as cuddly squirrels or rabbits in a safe environment."
- A review of Bloody Roar that mentions "the ability to turn into a gigantic bunny rabbit and kick the living hell out of my opponents was too alluring to pass up": "Furries everywhere rejoice and buy this game."
- An article mentioning Open Season beating out The Guardian for weekend movie sales: "America made it very clear this weekend that if they had to pick between animated, furry, woodland creatures kicking the snot out of hunters and Kevin Costner playing a tough-love father figure to Ashton Kutcher while jumping out of Coast Guard helicopters, they'll take the furries."
- MTV mentions Open Season as well: "If you're a studio squeezing in another animated flick about fun-loving furries on the run, you'd better find a unique angle in order to distinguish yourself from the herd."
- A review of Star Fox Command: "Part of the reason it feels weird in the context of Star Fox is one: because the entire cast consists of furries, and two: because of the oddly changed art style from the previous games."
